Now I wish I had loitered at David Letterman's show the other night. Hilton was a guest and when I switched on the TV she was saying to him that she didn't want to talk about the things that had been in the paper, and he said, But you see, that's all I want to talk to you about.

I smiled at his candor and turned on to some other channel.

I watched a little bit of it, Ebbie. I saw a young woman who may regret some of her actions and a bit of bullying from Letterman. I know folks will say she brought it on herself, but she was there to talk about others important to her and, though I usually like Letterman, I thought he was an ass about it, mostly because he didn't let it go, at least not while I was watching. It's so easy for folks to poke fun at the famous.

As I said, kat, that is all of the show I saw. I might agree with you more - actually, I do, at least to some degree- if Hilton were 16 years old. But she's not. She is old enough to know that there are repercussions and that it will take time and persisten effort to change the views of herself that she so assiduously cultivated.

Kat, I echo your feelings of Letterman's inquisition. I have no interest in P.H.-- I think she is more to be pitied then laughed at. Let's just ignore her. BUT Letterman came off as an arrogant bully who kept on. She asked a minimum of 3 times to change the subject. He kept on badgering her. At first the audience was laughing-but after awhile they were grumbling. I wanted her to get up & leave.

Letterman is a jerk-used to be funny. He lost me the night years ago when two darling little brothers came on. (forgot the reason) They were about 6 & 7, and each had the same sweator on. Dave said: "Oh there must have been a sweator sale." It was mean spirited & the audience groaned!

I surf between Jay(whose political bias is evident in almost every monologue) & Dave-waiting for Jimmy Kimmel. He is a gentleman & funny. Wish the other two would fade away.

Little Hawk, May I disagree with you? Money can make one happy & good. If one chooses to be a benefactor, there is great joy in giving. Greater joy in giving wisely. I've always thought if I won Lotto I'd start the very next day finding people who could turn their life around with such a gift. How could I not be happy doing that? I guess it sounds silly & naive- but those are my thoughts.

Saw Brad Pitt on the news-he and some friends are going to finance the building of 150 homes in New Orleans. Wonderful!! Absolutely!! Bet he's a happy man doing good.

Peace, you just gave me a flashback to something over 20 years ago, in Chicago. I noticed one day that any number of the clothing stores on the near north side, just off the lake, had little signs in the window saying "TVs welcome". I spent quite a while, brain dead, trying to make sense of the idea of stores bartering clothing for television sets.

I think we would all like to have that same chance. I know I would.

(If I had unlimited funds though, well, that would require some quiet time to just sit and think about it and decide...what the heck do I do now??? And there would also be the problem of keeping all the other people from finding out that one had unlimited funds, because as soon as they do find it out, your life can become quite complicated from that point on...even dangerous. If you live in Trinidad, for example, you will be in extreme danger of being kidnapped and held for ransom if you're known to be wealthy, and sometimes killed anyway by the kidnappers after the ransom is delivered. It happens a lot down there. Having too much money attracts way too much unwanted attention from those who would like to get some of it.)

Suppose there was a technology or a virtual magical truth system (VMTS) that allowed you to see the unmitigated truth in every situation in very action in every motivation human or otherwise, no matter how distant in the past or how recent in our future.

You would see exactly how Cleopatra lost her life, who shoot john, how the Wall St. scheme came together for a show down in a COngressiaonal bail out vote, etc.

And then imagine a well informed population could have these extraordinary truths at thier beck and call for the asking.






The truth is it would not make one damn bit of difference since one big lie will be believed by a minimum of 20% and a maximum of 80% of the population despite any VMTS



still it would nice to know if something did intentionally engineer and add a mitochondrial cell to living organisms that made all animal life possible.

If I might add a very apropos bit of Kipling


The Gods of the Copybook Headings

AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Rudyard Kipling
